How would you change the Sylvania Branch Library?

Posted: Updated:
SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library has announced plans to renew, upgrade and refresh the Sylvania Branch Library on Monroe Street, but it wants to hear your opinion first.

Founded in 1927, the library moved to its present location in 1958. It then merged into the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library in 1970. The building was extensively remodeled in 1989-90, but could use another renovation.

Community members can submit ideas and input for the $2.5 million project at a public meeting. Leaders will consider any type of advice, from layout to technology.

Many visitors say they enjoy the atmosphere and space.

"There is no problem ever in getting a seat at the Internet. Some of the other libraries, you have to wait a while to get a seat, like about an hour, before they free up. And I have never had a problem getting an Internet [seat] over here to do work," said Janine Gwozdz.

The public planning session starts at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Sylvania Branch.
